The actress recreated the cover of the singer’s 1987 album “Whitney”
The 31-year-old actress, who portrays the late recording artist in an upcoming Lifetime biopic, paid homage to the singer by striking the same pose Houston used on the cover of 1987’s “Whitney.”
The album, which included hit singles like “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)” and “Where Do Broken Hearts Go,” went nine times platinum.

EW was first to premiere the image with a playful quote from DaCosta: “I just looked at the picture and did the pose!”
